    Interesting & timely article. Like many of my female peers, I too set up my own practice, in my case after baby No 3. Luckily, I have been able to continue to have a challenging career in architecture, albeit only possible with the support of my husband who is also a fellow architect.

    ...but it was determined not to resort to a default capping solution - the architectural equivalent of drawing a thick cartoon outline around the flat roof to define where the building ends and sky begins...
    Not your own thoughts describing your Sanderson House project I hope?
    Your points above are entirely reasonable, and to an extent of course I applaud your conviction, but conviction should also be judged against what is appropriate to function - so If you need to specify a pitched roof with 2 layers of felt because its appropriate...in my view you probably should etc.
    Similarly if hundreds of years of timber construction suggest the use of a coping (or some other 21 C means?) to protect end grain timber...well, it’s maybe not such a bad idea?
    However, I sense we must agree to disagree and forge our separate discourse – one weathered and one not , but thank you for taking the time to respond.
